Germinal is "...an exceptionally inventive exploration of creativity, curiosity, and joy" Sep 22, 2014
"High Note: It’s hard to say much without giving away the discoveries of the show, but suffice it to say there’s singing, a conversation with a universal operator (that is, an operator who can install things into their confined universe like the law of thermodynamics), the destruction of the stage with a pick axe, and the most amazing use of Windows you’ve ever seen.
Bottom Line: At heart, the show is an exceptionally inventive exploration of creativity, curiosity, and joy—all the things that make living in this universe worthwhile. This is the can’t miss show of the festival—and possibly the year. Beat someone up and steal their ticket."
